Annaleigh Ashford to star opposite Kumail Nanjiani in true-crime series Immigrant
Actor Murray Bartlett is also a part of the cast
Hulu's upcoming true-crime series Immigrant has added actor Annaleigh Ashford to its cast. The actor will star alongside the previously announced Kumail Nanjiani and Murray Bartlett.
Immigrant will center around Chippendales' founder Somen “Steve” Banerjee (Nanjiani) and will detail the insane, crime-ridden story behind the unique male revue that became a cultural phenomenon.
Ashford will play the role of Steve Banerjee's wife Irene, an accounting wizard who bonds with her husband over their fondness for finding ways to work around paying takes. From a woman who keeps to herself, she steps up and takes her husband's business into her own hands.
Immigrant is created by Robert Siegel, who also writes the series alongside Rajiv Joseph and Mehar Sethi. Siegel also serves as co-showrunner with Jenni Konner. Ramin Bahrani will direct and executive produce alongside Siegel, Nanjiani, Konner, Dylan Sellers, Emily V. Gordon, and Nora Silver. Jacqui Rivera serves as a co-executive producer with Annie Wyman as a co-producer.
